Finally bought a Phantom

Today I finally got a P18 with the help of Derek. I have been after one of these since I was 12 and I first saw Derek's (No Worries). I think I have most substitutes including the Sharp 18 (awesome boat just pants in rough) but I finally have one.
Needs work but I wanted a project one anyway.
The plan is to completely rebuild it with a slightly different design to strengthen transom. A respray to Lambo Orange, then see if cookie will make me a carbon fibre screen and gauge holder. The existing seats in it are amazing but wont go once orange but they are the bespoke yellow vinyl Kevlar Suzuka Signatures. I will probably go for the same but black. After a long chat with Derek I will probably go for a xr2 200hp with offshore leg (if anyone has one for sale of even just the 15" leg and gbox for sale then please pm me) I will start a rebuild thread once I start.




More in my bucket if you want to look http://s181.photobucket.com/user/EVO...2018%20Rebuild

Sorry what I mean to say is when rebuilding it, strengthen it the way it's supposed to be ( through the well and onto the stringers) as apposed to what previous owner (before Derek) did (transom to back rest) it's not even strengthened!!! Derek was baffled too.

A mate of mine has an 18 with an XR2 on it it's buried in his garage not been used for well over 10 years I've even offered to strip own the powerhead and rebuild it for him but he just can't be bothered it will only need gaskets at it war running fine last time out
